Hello everybody!!!! I have gotten in the awful habit of posting every six or seven days, i need to get back to my regular schedule and do two or three posts a week. I wore this outfit last night to a concert/play with my sister, mom and aunt. My mom had thought it was a play which is why we decided to go (i love plays) but it turned out just to be a band singing. Well the hilarious thing was the average age of the audience was about seventy and my sister and i were the youngest people there by far. At one point we made plans to leave and go do something else in case it was boring but actually it was the funniest thing i have ever seen. The lead singer was so tiny and his dancing was just hilarious he bounced all over the stage doing moves i have never seen before, i was in stitches the entire time!! Oh and i got serenaded when he came off the stage which made me laugh even more so overall i had a good time which was a bit unexpected. I have worn this dress on here before (link), originally i wanted to wear a blazer instead of the cardigan but i had popped off one of the buttons so when i went to sew it on yesterday i had the thread and button but i left to drop my mom off at work and when i returned the button was absolutely nowhere to be found. I searched everywhere and could still not find the dumb little thing so i had to scrap that plan and just grabbed my moms sweater. I really hope i find it soon since the blazer is my absolute favourite and doesn't look right with a missing button (they are these lovely gold ones with a crest). I have been having a horrible time getting a pair of boots, absolutely nothing has fit my big feet, i had to return about four pairs already. So i was ridiculously happy when these ones arrived and they fit perfectly!!! I really wanted a pair of engineer boots, biker boots whatever they are called after i saw the ones Effy wore throughout the third season of Skins. These actually have some studs on the front although they are snow covered in these photos and are super comfortable which i desperately needed since heels kill my feet after a few hours. I wasn't feeling very well the last few days so need to catch up on all of the blog updates i missed and reply to comments (i am terribly behind on that, so sorry!!!!) I hope everyone had a lovely weekend :).

Cardigan: Stitches $12, Shirt: Thrift $4, Skirt: H&M $7, Tights: Ardenes: $3, Boots: Spring $41
Don't you just love lace, it is so pretty!!! The temperature was minus one degrees today and it was down right balmy outside, ok i am kidding but i thought it would be a excellent time to show you my lace cardigan without freezing the second i stepped out the door (it was still cold though). I found my top the other day thrift shopping and just loved the colour/ruffles instantly, i wish i had more photos showing it a bit better but yet again most of my pictures were complete duds so i will just have to wear it again very soon. I was so pleased to find this skirt in my H&M as it is almost the exact copy of the one i had from Charlotte in the clothing swap which i quite loved. The store was really picked over while i was there but i would like to get some different coloured body con skirts next time. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and i am going to draw my giveaway winner very soon so if you haven't entered go take a look!!!

Jacket: Winners (Gift), Scarf: Gift, Top: Thrift $2, Stitches (DIY), Boots: Spring $41, Gloves: borrowed from my mom, Wing Ring: Gift, Ring: Thrift Store $3
Lately i have been wearing my leather jacket as a sweater because i love it to much not to wear it. Right now it is freaking cold and if i was going outside for more then a few minutes i would definitely need my winter coat on. I wasn't very pleased with my photos as i ended up making weird or mad faces in them, i am going to blame the temperature for that :). I bought this top a year ago for only two dollars, at the time i thought it was a bit to short for leggings but when i tried it on again today it totally passed my legging rule (has to be long enough to cover your bum!!). Funny story about the black scarf i am wearing, it was a gift for Christmas which i very subtly hinted to my mom i wanted and i wore on here the day i got it. It was so big, soft and warm i really loved it. Well the next day at my other family Christmas my cousin and i went for walk in the fields behind their farm well i had to shed some layers after trudging through the snow for a piece so off went the scarf. I could have sworn i wore it home but the next day i searched everywhere and couldn't find it, my aunt looked at their place but the scarf wasn't to be found. Yup thats right i left the bloody thing out in the field where it got buried in snow and wasn't found until there was a bit of a thaw. It survived the ordeal relatively unscathed although i think it is a little bit longer then before but i am quite happy to have it back now!! I have decided to start my new years resolution now (better late then never right) and lose all of the extra weight i have gained over the past year. I have this pair of denim high waisted shorts which went from being a little snug all over in the summer to ultimate wedgie, can't breath tight now so my goal is to fit into them perfectly soonish :). i hope everyone had a lovely week!!!

Cardigan: Thrift $7, Blouse: Thrift $4, Skirt: Suzy Shier $15, Tights: Ardenes $3, Shoes: Thrift $2, Belt: Thrift $1, Ribbon: bought the whole roll at wall mart for $2, Rings: Ardenes
Wahoo new picture taking spot!! In my usual absent minded ways i totally forgot about the front of my house, specically the garage door as a new back drop for my outfit photos. It is a little awkward when people drive by or neighbors pop out of there houses but i like the white background :). I really love how a ribbon just makes a relatively simple button up blouse look extra special. After seeing these three looks (1, 2, 3) i knew i had to buy some cheap black ribbon and try it out for myself (hopefully that is not copying!!). A current obsession of mine is lace, black lace especially i think it just looks amazing. I bought this skirt last year at Christmas time on sale, I blame all of the big meals i had but i needed a larger size then usual and sure enough a few weeks afterwards when i tried it on again it was to big so i have only worn it a few times. A belt and some rolling of the waistband solved the problem thankfully becuase it is a really pretty skirt!! I completely forgot to mention this but a week or more ago the lovely Natasha featured me on her blog in her Canadian Cuties section (Canadian girls go check it out and fill out the questions!!). I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!!!

Coat: Thrifted $27, Dress: H&M $10, Belt: Salvation Army $4, Tights: Gift, Socks: Ardenes $3, Boots: Vintage via Ebay $27
Ok i lied i thought i would post these pictures yesterday but it was my moms birthday so we went over to my grandparents to celebrate and stayed quite a bit longer then i had originally thought, so here they are today :). I think this is quite possibly my new favourite dress, i just love the burnt orange colour, ruffled sleeves and that it was on sale for only ten dollars at H&M, such a bargain!!! I ventured outside my backyard for these photos and i love how it looks like i am out in the middle of the nowhere despite the fact there are houses about ten meters from me. I felt like a walking Popsicle as it was ridiculously cold when i took these photos. I only lasted twenty frames before i had to get back in the car and blast the heat on my numb hands. Winter...yeesh i am ready for some nice weather warm weather anytime now!! I wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone for those super nice comments about my video in my last post. I had a little anxiety attack when i watched it after i posted and was like oh god it is horrible!! So they made me feel quite a bit better, I hope everyone had a lovely day!!

Shirt: Value Village $13, Skirt: H&M $7, Necklace: Thrift $5, Tights: Ardenes $3, Socks: Ardenes $3, Shoes: Spring $25, Ring: Ardenes $? (really old)
Hello everybody!!! Only one post in a week yeesh that is not a good way to start the new year!! As i mentioned in my last post i was feeling very uninspired with my wardrobe and decided to wait till i had gone shopping before i took outfit photos. I went yesterday and am seriously excited to wear some of my new clothes. This outfit doesn't look nearly as good in these photos as it does in real life which was was a little disappointing. I found the top at value village for the very inflated price of $13. I was a little peeved as it isn't even a full length shirt but i loved it instantly so i decided to bit the bullet and purchase it. After trying out a body-con skirt in a clothing swap i knew i had to pick up some next time i went to H&m. I was super lucky and found this black one along with one that was identical to the skirt from the swap on the very picked over racks. They both only had one of my size left among the teeny tiny size twos :). I took these photos after i came home from work so i apologize for my yucky hair, i desperately need to get a haircut to put some shape into it lately i have just been pining it back on both sides but i need some more variety!! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!

Vest: Christmas Gift, Shirt: Suzy Shier, Dress: Thift $6, Belt: Thrift $1, Tights: Gift, Socks: Ardenes $3, Boots: Spring $41, Gloves: Borrowed for my mom
It was very chilly taking these photos, you know it's cold when your hands hurt and go numb through your gloves!! You must be totally sick of seeing my backyard every photo but when it is minus ten or lower i am to big of a wuss to leave and drive/walk to another place to take pictures. I have been in a outfit slump lately, the whole week i have stared at my room and thought i have nothing to wear which is so not true since it is over flowing with clothes everywhere. So i figured when in doubt wear black. I hope other people are like this but i have a few clothes which are my absolute favourites and i just wear constantly for some reason or other and neglect all of my other things. I have worn this plain black dress on here so many times (heres the link to my favourite photos) it is so comfy :)!! For this post i put a old turtleneck over it and wore it as a skirt to change up the look a bit. As i mentioned way to many times i love my vest and this is the other side of it. I worked most of the past week and haven't been shopping for any Christmas sales yet (ugh). Oh but i did order this pair of over the knee boots on Aldo for the ridiculous price of $28 with free shipping. I think i am going to the city this week so i can finally spend all of my hard earned money (haha not all of course but some) and find some goodies for my belated 100 followers/ Christmas giveaway!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years!!
